HONG KONG/TAIPEI (Reuters) - Hewlett-Packard Co's personal computer business may be too big for Asia's technology companies to swallow whole, but potential suitors are out there should HP decide to break the group into parts, industry sources said on Friday.

HP, the world's largest PC brand, said on Thursday it is exploring the possibility of spinning off its Personal Systems Group, a business valued by some analysts at $10-$12 billion.

"The sheer size of the Personal Systems Group means that it is unlikely the entire unit will be purchased by one company," said Carter Lusher, an analyst with research firm Ovum.
